When I was a kid, we spent most of our free time outside, playing with neighborhood friends. There were no smartphones or video games to keep us in, so out we went!
We all had wheels to get around, too. But I'm not talking about cars. We got around on skates, bikes and skateboards!
Of course, our "personal transport devices" looked a little different back then...
Every kid had a bike. Mine looked something like the blue one below, except I had a basket in front for carting my schoolbooks home. I remember being jealous of my best friend, Nancy, 'cause she had an "English Racer".
Brings back fond memories! Even though our wheels were not very exotic by today's standards, we had a blast, and I think kids today are missing something by staying indoors so long, wrapped up in their FaceBook and Nintendo.

Most folks either have a particular brand and type of bicycle in mind as they shop around, or they get to Walmart on Christmas Eve and pick out ones that look appropriate for the kids.
So we'll not even attempt to make any recommendations on bikes.
But... we did come across a cool e-bike we thought you might like to hear about:
